1.- The 13th "Cine del Mar: Un Cine del MERCOSUR" Festival, to be held from July 8th to 12th, 2020, calls for the Ibero-American Short and Long Film Competition, with the aim of stimulating and disseminating the production of short films from the region and the continent.

2.- Short films and feature films produced and made in Latin American countries, or Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries, can participate, even if they have production from other countries outside the continent, but the origin of the project and its realization must be in a Latin American country, or Spain and Portugal.

3.- They must have been produced from January 1st 2018 and in the following categories: fiction, documentary and animation. The maximum length accepted per work will be 15 minutes for short films and 100 minutes for long films. Works may not have been exhibited in previous editions of the festival and priority will be given to those that are national or regional premieres.

4.- The productions may have been produced in any film or digital format, but they must be submitted for exhibition in the following formats MOV file H264 1920x1080 or similar (MKV, MP4, AVI).

5.- In the case of films that are not originally in Spanish language, they must come with subtitles embedded in Spanish. Exceptionally, works will be accepted if they are sent with an SRT file with Spanish subtitles.

6.- The deadline for the reception of materials is June 8th, 2020.

7.- An international jury will discern the prizes in the different categories, and their decision will be final.

8.- The festival will try to provide facilities for the presence of the filmmakers of the selected films during the festival, but the acceptance of the film does not imply the granting of an invitation with ticket and accommodation, which must be paid for by the participant.

9.- The registration of the film in the festival implies the tacit acceptance of these rules.
